I have had some hard times over the last month. This week I was able to work on set as a Production Assistant and learn the ropes on a commercial. I had done this before for experience but this week I met two amazing PA’s that i worked with for three days. Those two had been PA’s for awhile now and had some nice connections that they offered to connect me with. Out of one came the introduction to an amazing entertainment group that produces some of the best reality TV shows out. I was blown away by the kindness of these two people and I learned so much from them last week. The other PA connected me with a gig for next week, and even though its only two days I know that it can grow into more in the future.
The lesson I learned (and maybe you can too), is that people want to help other people. If you are a great person to be around, positive, hard working, and polite people will open up to you. Now this does not mean act that way, it means being a good person. If I ever get a break that I can pay forward you can bet that I am calling those two first. Positive breeds positive. Pay the good things forward!
